  • Perceived effectiveness for Depression with anxiety: Slight
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Lexapro was the first antidepressant I had ever taken, and it seemed to work well. However, as my dosage of Keppra increased, I began to get frequent panic attacks and anxiety, and I had little energy and no motivation. My general practitioner switched me to Paxil, and I am slowing the dosage of Keppra as I get onto Trileptal. I feel so much better! :)
